The Grefti Cultural Project, will present from 1 to 4 November 2018, for the 2018 Bosco del Bosco Festival, by Veronica Azzinari and Roberto Ghezzi, two young artists whose works and artistic processes we deeply admire.
Both artists are bound by the search for primordial knowledge, which leads them to act in and interact with the world, so to speak, “natural”; that is, trying to capture information from that world that exists beyond human culture.
Both artists have devised two workshops for the days of the festival and will be present during the exhibition to talk with the public about their work. Below is information about the activities.
Veronica Azzinari investigates with her artistic processes the memory of our cultural history preserved in Italian botany.
“Constantly immersed in natural environments I collect, physically and visually, the clues left behind by earth, plants, rock, water. I collect hidden information between the rhythms repeated by each element, between the methodical drawings within each seed, sprout, flower. ”
Veronica invites us on Sunday November 4th at 10 AM to follow her on a guided tour through the woods to experience the effects of Nature on our senses. An engaging experience that will be immortalized visually with the creation of a travel notebook returned to the Church of Santa Caterina.
Roberto Ghezzi’s technique reveals the forgotten creative forces of the Wood. Interacts and uses this “that lives in the environment and that, if there were not my supports, would inevitably fall on another landscape below, is instead intercepted by my paintings. I choose the place, the material, the form of the installation and the exposure time. Nature does the rest. When, after months, I decide to pick up my works from their creation environment and maybe place them in a gallery, here: I transport a part of “place” in a human space, something that does not represent but “is”.
Together with the Ass. Historically A.R.I.e.S. Hiking and Simonetta Cirilli (professor of geology at the University of Perugia), which will add a scientific point of view to the artistic creation specially designed for the territory of Montone, will be held an excursion on the site of the installation of Roberto in the Carpina River Sunday 3 November at 8 AM.
